## How to Convert BCD to Decimal?

• First Split the BCD into nibbles(4 digits)

• Write equivalent decimal no for each nibbles

• Let's consider an example to Convert (100000110010)BCD binary to decimal

• Split BCD into 4 digits as shown: 1000 0011 0010

• (1000) becomes 8,(0011) becomes 3,(0010) becomes 2

• Combine the decimal digits 832

• (100000110010)BCD=(832)10

## How To Convert Decimal to BCD?

• Write binary nibble for each digit of decimal

• Let's consider an example to Convert 236 decimal to BCD

• Binary Equivalent for 2 is 0010,Binary Equivalent for 3 is 0011,Binary Equivalent for 6 is 0110

• Combine all the binary numbers

• (236)10 = (001000110110)BCD

## Frequently Asked Questions on BCD to Decimal converter

• Binary Code decimal is the process of converting decimal numbers into their binary equivalents

• 8421 is also called as BCD code which is expresses in 4 bit binary numbers according to their place value 8421 (2³ 2² 2¹ 2⁰ = 8421).

• Write the binary equivalent for each decimal digit and then combine the values.

• First Split the BCD into nibbles(4 digits).
Then write equivalent decimal no for each nibbles.
Finally Combine the decimal numbers.

• Binary represents 0 and 1 whereas BCD represents binary code decimal .
Binary value is not coded separately whereas BCD value is coded separately.
Base value of binary is 2 whereas for BCD is 4.
Binary is number system whereas BCD is coding system.

• BCD is used in clock time and also for displaying alpha numberic values

• bcd 2421 is also called as Aiken code.
